12 Days of Craftmas

Ok so.... tis the season to not only be jolly, but remember those around the world who have less than us, who will not be gathered under a sparkling pine-scented tree, who will not sip mulled wine or sparkling grapetise, and who will not be tearing shiny paper off packages. We all know this, and it's always a challenge to think of new and interesting ways of giving or contributing... My official 12 Days of Craftmas will kick off tomorrow, featuring a new item(soft-toy/jewellery etc, made by moi) for sale every day. The item will always cost $30, and will be personalised to your request, eg a toy will have a name of your choice stitched onto its funky belly. This is the important bit:
$10 OF EACH $30 SALE WILL GO TOWARDS AN OXFAM DONATION to be made on Christmas Eve, the 24th.
Each day will provide two options for example tomorrow as day number one will feature a soft toy called Lulu, and a fabulous fabric necklace. Either of these can be purchased when you contact me, and they will then be packaged up in a lovely box or package yet to be decided, and then delivered to the address of your choice(within the Auckland area - outside of it and I shall have to post; I'm not Santa Claus!). You may choose to have the item sent to yourself or to a person of your choice, there are infinite options!
The aim is to raise at least $120 for Oxfam by Christmas: this may not seem like a large amount, but believe me, in bags of rice or the standard 'goat' currency, $120 will go far.
So.... keep checking everyday from tomorrow, for 12 days, to see if something takes your fancy. I will post the new item on facebook daily, as well as 'inviting' buttloads of people on facebook to this 12 day 'event'. Feliz Navidad!
